over steroid use. is it enough to restore trust in america's favorite pastime? perspective this morning as i talk with bob costas of nbc sportses. i'm david gregory. all that ahead on "meet the press" this sunday morning, august 4th. >> and good sunday morning. the u.s. is on high alert at this hour. 22 u.s. embassies from north africa to bangladesh are closed now, and a worldwide travel alert is in effect for americans. andrea mitchell is nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent. andrea, good to have you here. what is it about where this is coming from and the significance of it that has engendered such a big reaction? >> well, they have intercepted chatter and it's coming from and targeting yemen. they believe it's either emanating from yemen where al qaeda and the arabian peninsula is the strongest unit or fractional unit of al qaeda that still remains. it's also the most operational unit. they're concerned about this area, but now they're looking at other areas as well. if there is no attack today, because this is the holiest day of the month of ramadan, the holy period in the musl
in america for five years so that if we're going to target one particular person we're ready to jump on it? that is being discussed and debated. the president is open to suggestions to make this stronger and more responsive and transparent. >> what's your suggestion? because the nsa argues you can't have half a haystack opinion you have to have basically all the numbers in the united states if you're going to be able to match it against what senator chambliss talked about, a bad guy overseas talking to somebody in the united states. >> that's one of two questions. first is how much do you need to collect? who should hold this? does the government need all this information on everybody in this country? that's the first preliminary question that we're going the address. the ekd second is the fisa court, this court we know very little about and isn't public, how much authority should it have? what checks should be in place to make sure that there is at least an adversary yal proceeding there when it comes to the issue of privacy and security? so i think that we're open to changes in both. the
'm comfortable talking about sources and methods. i think this is not a partisan issue. complacency is america's biggest enemy and al qaeda knows that. so if we have to be vigilant, our vigilance doesn't stop after a month, interesting thing from a foreign policy aspect, is president obama responsible for al qaeda's morphing and evolution. >> i don't know about that. >> maybe not. >> one of the reasons for the increased chatter here is a lot of these prisoners have escaped from where we have been holding them and we have been releasing them. so you have the abu ghraib prison break, morsi in egypt released about a thousand the other day, in afghanistan we have a program where we pay militants to leave the battlefield, they get to keep their guns, just have to sign the dotted line, say i am going to reintegrate into the community. >> they should do that for chicago. it might work. sundays, everybody knows i love to watch the sunday shows, i sit and record them just for this show. here is a montage of people talking about the terror threats. >> a threat to blow up an embassy, consulate or somethi
or or here in america. al qaeda in the arabian peninsula based in yemen identified as the primary force behind the plot. lawmakers on the sunday talk shows sacreddable threat suggest that a major attack is about to happen. >> there is awful lot of chatter out there among terrorists about the planning that is going on. very reminiscent of what we sue saw pre9/11. this is the most ear russ threat i've seen in the last several years. >> we need to know and realize we're living in an increasingly dangerous world. this specific threat that we've been briefed on over and over again has reach ad new level. >> this is a wake-up call. al qaeda in any ways stronger than it was before 9/11 because it has mutated and spread and can come at us from different directions. al qaeda in a arabian peninsula is the most deadly of the al qaeda affiliates. >> 19 diplomatic posts are closed through end the week. britain, france and germany closing their embassies in yemen. jennifer griffin is live at the pentagon. jennifer, how unusual is this warning? >> reporter: it is very unusual, kelly. the state departm
enemies, and he's made it more difficult for our security services to keep america safe. now with regard to the russians, i think i agree with the senator from new york. it's a bit of a slap in the face. i know the administration is reconsidering the visit in moscow after the g-20 with president putin. frankly i don't think president obama should go. maybe just betrays my own personal background, chris, but i think it's a jump ball whether he should go to saint petersburg for the g-20 at all. >> you've been on the fringes of it. let's get directly into this question of the nsa, what it's doing, whether should be new limits. general, the house almost passed, as you well know last week, a measure offered by congressman amash, that would have put an end to the kind of blanket collection of phone records of all americans, and instead limit that only to information on americans who were under specific investigation for links to terrorism. on a practical level, general, would that have hamstrung you? >> oh, chris, it would have turned the program on its head. look, this isn't -- this program,
threat that i've seen in the last several years. >>gretchen: should america take a stand or shut down? joining us is fox news middle eastern terrorist expert. what do you make of this? i know it would take more than an idle threat to close this many embassies. >> i do. what we know is al qaeda from yemen and other spots have threatened individuals will blow up inside the embassy. we're not talking about an all-out attack from the outside by thousands of people, hundreds of people. in this case the best position would have been to say we're not receiving visitors and we are taking measures and also ask the armies and the security forces of these countries to create a perimeter of protection. the reason i'm saying this short of knowing very specifically what time and who and what manner they're going to attack the embassy, if we don't have this information, we don't have it. that's why we shut down 22 of those. this would be the best course. the reason is this is sending a message to al qaeda and the other jihaddists they are winning. even if they don't attack they will get videos and m
, everybody, i'm bill hemmer live here in "america's newsroom." she's come back for more pain and punishment. patti ann: not at all. i'm in for martha maccallum today, and senior u.s. officials say the intelligence is specific, and it points to terrorists setting off surgically-implanted devices. former cia director michael hayden says closing the embassies could be more than just caution. >> well, that's the cost of doing business, and i understand the argument that it seems to, as you say, empower them more than perhaps they're really capable of performing. on the other hand, you have a real danger to americans. you want to be cautious and let me add an additional factor in here, chris, the announcement itself may also be designed to interrupt al-qaeda planning, to put them off stride, to put them on the back foot, to let them know that we're alert and that we're on at least to a portion of this plot line. bill: so that with chris wallace on sunday morning. peter doocy live this morning out of washington. good morning to you. the latest on these threats, what can we report? good morning. >
're not talking zero attacks, what is an acceptable level? what's america's good enough? >> we thank you for being here. we appreciate it. are terrorists planning another benghazi-style attack? and how did cnn track down a person of interest in that attack when the government was coming up empty handed? watch "the truth about benghazi" tomorrow night at 10:00 p.m. eastern. >> coming up, the in vitro burger, meat grown in a petri dish like mom used to make. >> and who is the most popular in politics, a poll poll says it's chris christie. sorry, ladies, he's married. stay with us. nope eeeeh... oh, guys let's leave the deals to hotels.com. ooh that one! nice. got it! oh my gosh this is so cool... awesome! perfect! yep, and no angry bears. the perfect place is on sale now. up to 40% off. only at hotels.com ♪ the middle of this special moment and i need to run off to the bathroom. ♪ i'm fed up with always having to put my bladder's needs ahead of my daughter. ♪ so today, i'm finally talking to my doctor about overactive bladder symptoms.

once again holding paying the bills of the united states of america on debt ceiling, holding that hostage as well. i think these are suicidal strategies for the republicans. i think people want, even people who don't agree with obama care or with the president want to see congress do something for them. these kinds of processed things, shutting down the government and not paying the bills of the united states, these are things that i think are a turnoff to people across the board. >> and, you know, i think, joan and the congresswoman, aside from the politics of it, at some point, i think americans have the right, no, have the obligation to expect that our members of congress and the senate will be above politics when it comes to things like health care and do what is for the good of the country. we don't elect them to just be partisan players. we elect them to do what is best for the country. congresswoman joan schakowsky and joan walsh, thank you for your time tonight. >> thanks, rev. >> thank you, reverend al. >>> ahead, the man who vowed to make barack obama a one-term pre
